Turn Tantrums and Sibling Rivalry into Skills for Life

Do your toddlers, young children or teens have trouble managing their emotions?

Do your children fight with their siblings and engage in sibling rivalry?

If you answered yes to any of those questions then please join me, Dr Rosina McAlpine and my dear friend Dr Robyn Mills as we explore the many practical tools you can use to turn tantrums and fights into a learning opportunity to teach your children many life skills like:

  •  emotional intelligence: understanding and managing their emotions
  •  social responsibility: being caring and sharing people

OK, we all know that siblings fight and we all know that children can have difficulty managing their big emotions like anger, jealousy and fear, SO, let’s not see this as a negative thing BUT see it in a positive light. You might be sceptical right? Stay with me - how about we reframe these difficult times as opportunities we can use to teach our children how to get on in life, whether they are toddlers or teenagers.

The more you children learn about life safely and lovingly in your home with you – the less you have to worry about your children when they are out in the world and don’t have you there to help them and to keep them safe.

If you can help your children learn to get on with their siblings – you are helping them get on with teachers, friends and other relatives. If you can help them manage their emotions at home – you can feel confident they will be able to manage them in situations they find themselves in and you are not around!

As always it is a fun show with loads of heart-warming stories and positive parenting advice, resources, tools and tips you can use in your home with your family and share with your friends.
